Tangled Webs by Irene Hannon

Tangled Webs by Irene Hannon
After a disastrous Middle East mission ends his six-year Army Ranger career, Finn McGregor needs some downtime. A peaceful month in the woods sounds like the perfect way to decompress. But peace isn't on the agenda once he crosses paths with publishing executive Dana Lewis, a neighbor who is nursing wounds of her own. Someone seems bent on disrupting her stay in the lakeside cabin she inherited from her grandfather. As Finn and Dana work together to discover who is behind the disquieting pranks, the incidents begin to take on a menacing tone. And when it becomes apparent Dana's foe may have deadly intent, Finn finds himself back in the thick of the action--ready or not.

My Thoughts:

This is book 3 of the Men of Valor series and I think the best in the series. I really enjoyed the characters Ms. Hannon developed and the plot-which kept me thoroughly interested until the very end. What works in this book over others I've read in the romantic suspense genre is the authenticity in the human nature element. Ms. Hannon introduces us to several characters who, when faced with critical decisions, make "human" choices. Real choices. Consequences or not-they make a choice. And it drew me to conclude that given these circumstances it's very possible this story could cross the realm of fiction straight into the front page news of Anytown, USA.

I was pleasantly surprised and appreciated the romantic element between Finn McGregor and Dana Lewis. Ms. Hannon allows the attraction to develop throughout the pages so that when (and yes, it's always when in romantic fiction) Finn and Dana fall for each other, kiss, and plan a possible future together it didn't leave me rolling my eyes with the thought, "That would never happen." It was nice to see reality come through in fiction and while the end will satisfy romance fans in the expected way, for me it was a perfectly plausible ending.

Tangled Webs is a great book that can easily be read as a stand-alone in the Men of Valor series but if you're new to Irene Hannon's novels, this one will make you a fan!
